Developing a worksheet on problems faced by teachers and students in vocational training centres in a changing learning and teaching environment

Abstract

Our vocational training centres, where some 140 trades are taught, are important sites for learning occupational health and safety (OHS) practices. However, the teaching of OHS is complex and requires resources and physical premises adapted to needs.
Thanks to our research project, Vocational training and OHS: Exploring the problems faced by teachers and students in vocational training centers in a changing learning and teaching environment, we were able to identify OHS problems faced by teachers and students and to suggest possible solutions.
The purpose of this activity is to produce worksheets for college training centres offering technical training programs. Four key OHS strategies are suggested that can help users examine OHS practices and teaching in their training centre and find solutions to problems.
